Robert Pattinson Talks About WFE & Other Things On MTV

>> 2011/03/20

From NextMovie:

Well, that went extremely well, didn't it?

Robert Pattinson is now officially a guy we want to hang out with. He comes across as a funny (you could so do "Saturday Night Live," Rob), personable and down-to-earth fella who probably likes eating pizza, watching Netflix and hanging out with his dog, Bear (shortened from "Yogi Bear," as he was called in the shelter).

RPattz sat down with's Josh Horowitz for over a half an hour to discuss his new film, "Water For Elephants," and pretty much everything else that might be of even the slightest interest on "MTV First: Robert Pattinson," which streamed the night of March 18.

Rob first introduced an exclusive clip from the period romance, "Water For Elephants," which featured Pattinson trying to convince a platinum blonde Reese Witherspoon to jump off a moving train with him. Swoon!

Rob then answered questions from both and a live Twitter feed and revealed quite a few interesting tidbits about... well, a lot of stuff. As there was no real coherency to the discussion (as is true with the best hanging-out sessions), here are some random highlights from the mind (and mouth) of RPattz:

-- An elephant fart is not unlike a "hurricane," and no one knows this better than Reese Witherspoon.

-- He knows the following phrases in Polish: "Kneel," "Open your mouth," "Smile" and "Pray." These are elephant commands, though taken out of context could make things very interesting on a trip to Poland.

-- He describes the upcoming love scene in "Breaking Dawn" as "pretty funny," though he reveals that director Bill Condon has definitely made the film "like a horror movie."

-- He admits he was "hungover and bloated" at the Los Angeles premiere of "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix."

-- The female lead in David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" has apparently been cast, but he's not allowed to say who it is. Juliette Binoche and Samantha Morton have also joined the cast.

-- There's no truth to the recent rumors that he's being courted for the "Daredevil" sequel/reboot, though he suggests that his "Eclipse" director David Slade should play "the bald guy" (meaning Bullseye).

-- He recently learned to play the cello.

-- He's never seen an episode of "Glee," despite many of his friends telling him that he must.

Rob also told a brief story involving him and some other people being in a hotel room in New Orleans and watching "Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes" which inspired them to all act like monkeys for a few hours, but as we're unclear of the context or what prompted the telling of such a tale, we'll just file that under "Myths and Legends."

Robert Thomas-Pattinson was born on May 13, 1986, in Barnes, a suburb of London, the capital of England. His mother, Clare, worked for a modeling agency, and his father, Richard, imported vintage cars from the U.S. Robert is the youngest of three kids in the Pattinson family, and the only son. He has two older sisters. Elizabeth is three years older than he is, and Victoria is five years older. Pattinson became involved in amateur theatre through the Barnes Theatre Company. After some backstage experience there, he took on acting roles. He caught the attention of an acting agent in a production of Tess of the D'Urbervilles and began looking for professional roles. Since then he has performed in an amateur version of Macbeth at the Old Sorting Office Arts Centre, as well as trying his hand at modeling. more

Musical career

Pattinson plays guitar and piano, and composes his own music. He also appears as the singer of two songs on the Twilight soundtrack:
"Never Think", which he co-wrote with Sam Bradley,
and "Let Me Sign", which was written by Marcus Foster and Bobby Long.
The soundtrack for the film How To Be features three original songs performed by Pattinson and written by composer Joe Hastings.
